Come visit our display in Fowler Hall! The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) is excited to begin a new ministry: Art for the Soul. Each month different artists will display their artwork, including paintings, pottery, jewelry and more. This program allows the artist to showcase and sell art to the members of St. James’ as well as others who attend various programs throughout the month. DOK will use its proceeds from Art for the Soul to support outreach ministries.

Mary Margaret Hickman has been interested in mandalas for years. She finally realized her dream of designing them after she retired from teaching twelve years ago. Carl Jung called a mandala ” a sacred circle” making mandala design a peaceful, meditative art form. One can see the symmetry and balance of a mandala in a flower, beautiful stained glass windows, even in a pizza !!!! Mary Margaret has taught several mandala workshops and has exhibited her art at juried shows at The Cedars in Jackson and Southside Gallery in Oxford. You can see more of her art at Madison Marketplace in Madison.
